Great! everyone likes the idea. I thought it was a bit nerdy in all honesty.

Everyone is welcome to shout out ideas. So long as the two 'consoles' are fairly unique it should be cool.

Also demos should be acceptable albeit at a loss to the overall score (or sales).

I might mock up two quick games when the limitations are finalised.

AndyUK, we make video games. Nerdy?

I'm of the ever-so-humble opinion that they need to be pre-SNES era. Most click games are about that level or worse anyway so to not limit to NES or Atari level or something would be pointless.

Ok we're nerds...

Well we could always have one 8 bit console and one 16 bit console.

But the 16-bit console has some glaring flaws because it's released before the technology is perfected?

I love the limitations idea. I think this compo will see some great entries, like the 20 event competition did

Why make it home consoles? Why not choose some systems a little more 'exotic', such as the Game Gear (colour screen limited by pallet and resolution) and Game Boy (monochrome but most popular)??

Yeah actually maybe they could be home computers, like the Amiga or commodore 64 or a handheld.

I'm working on some specs at the moment.

We still need to work out how everything is going to work.

For instance how do we decide who works on what format? do i do a random draw? or let people decide for themselves?

If you make both consoles equally good then it would be ok to pick.

What about one console supports more colors, but the other runs faster? And stuff like that.

I only have about twenty million ideas for this

I say we "invent" 3 consoles with very specific limitations. Grab together all the people who are entering and assign them a console (by random, so each system has roughly the same number of entrants, give or take 1).

Could have it like, though I think made up names are better with different limitations... just an example like.
Amiga- Best sound and graphics. Limited by game size (assuming theres 1 disk). Long load times.
Mega Drive- Blast Processing! Larger cart size than Amiga.
SNES- Good sound and graphics. Larger cart size. 3Dfx chip.

Oh and late joiners would be assigned one too, of course. To allow freedom of design maybe let people swap consoles if they both agree?
